I just want to thank Madame Gill for asking all those questions. It did help me to understand better what her line of thinking is. I do appreciate the staff who are helping to explain that. I do understand that, just in relation to that, it is important to not specifically define those other peoples, because I think we will end up going into a deep hole. I think it is a good signal to the future board that this board is going to be inclusive of other peoples. I do appreciate that discussion very much.
I will move on to my amendment.
I move that reference number 12027909 be considered. The purpose of this amendment is to add to clause 13 in terms of the knowledge and experience. I will read the provision just so the purpose of the amendment is clear.
(2) To ensure that Indigenous views are heard in relation to the advancement of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, the Council must consult with a variety of persons with relevant knowledge, expertise or experience, including elders, survivors of the discriminatory and assimilationist policies of the Government of Canada and Indigenous law practitioners.

That's a great question, Gary.
I added this after our witnesses from the interim board because it became evident to me that it's going to be important for the board not in terms of its directorship but so it can hear from these groups through, for example, advisory committees. It's not necessarily with respect to the board membership but so it can hear from these groups of people as advisers.

Qujannamiik, Iksivautaq.
Having reviewed amendments CPC-3 and PV-3, I do notice some differences between the two amendments. I'm willing to support it. We have also supported CPC-3, but PV-3 is a little bit more prescriptive, in that it needs to happen within six months and it sets out some very specific items based on the TRC calls to action.
I think it is slightly different and I'm willing to support the motion as well.

I'd like to ask the witnesses about the work of the interim board and how much of that preparatory work will help contribute to ensuring that this important work could be reported sooner rather than later.
I do agree that first nations, Métis and Inuit have already been forced to wait years for a lot of this information. I agree with the Conservatives' motion that there is a sense of urgency for this kind of information. There is an interim board that's already functioning. I wonder if that would help make sure that this amendment could be supported.
Qujannamiik.

Sorry, I just need some clarification before we vote.
Isn't it better to do a subamendment to replace the Prime Minister with the Speaker? Then approving the subamendment will mean that we don't need to discuss the rest of the similar amendments.

Qujannamiik, Iksivautaq.
I move that reference number 12043323 be considered.
The purpose of this amendment to the preamble is just to put into a better context why reconciliation is so important and to state the fact that indigenous peoples thrived before colonialism, that they “managed and governed their Indigenous lands” and that “since the arrival of the settlers and colonization, Indigenous peoples have experienced assimilationist policies, which must be addressed through reconciliation”.

As much as I appreciate the intent of the proposal, I would be inclined to reject it, because then we would also have to add all the other settler groups that had their colonial policies, like the Hudson's Bay corporation, the churches and all these other places that had quite negative impacts on indigenous people. I'd prefer that we focus on just “the arrival of settlers and colonization”.

I guess, given that this is inserted into the preamble to provide a context of what happened in the past, I don't know that we need to try to define who the populations are or exclude other people.
I think that generally in the preamble—and maybe this is something that the team could respond to as well—I've been trying to make it so that it's a general acknowledgement of what happened in the past: that indigenous peoples did thrive before settlers and other groups arrived and forced colonial policies to be implemented.
I don't know that we can have a specific word to try to define it. Maybe this is something that the team can try to respond to.

If I may, I know that “settlers” is also an academic term that is generally used and it's not meant to focus only on settlers who were individuals, but again I remind you that this is a part of the preamble to provide context as to what the realities were, that there were indeed settlers and people—agents—both of whom were having negative impacts on the lives of indigenous peoples.
I think encompassing it as “the arrival of settlers and colonization” provides that context to show why reconciliation is so important.

Yes. I move that reference number 12026958, also known as NDP-8, be considered.
The purpose of this amendment is to add to the preamble “the progress being made towards reconciliation, including in relation to respect for and the protection and promotion of the rights of Indigenous peoples”.
